This project was quite labour intensive. I developed the concept for a series of 4 ads to run in magazines for a chocolate manufacturer. Each poster represents a season with a chocolate sculpture in it (chocolate is good all year round!). I tried a few things to will the chocolate into the shapes I want. But in the end I had to sculpt the duck, humming bird and snowflake from clay and melt a pot of chocolate and dipped the clay sculptures into it. Surprisingly, I used a real leaf and it held up well under the heat and weight of the chocolate. Then I had to photograph the sculptures for the ads.
Too bad I actually don’t like chocolate that much!
